Free Course of the Month - Ko Olina Golf Club - April 2010

Ko Olina Golf Club, Oahu, Hawaii

Download the PDF here. (Only current month PDF available)

Ko Olina Golf Club is the centerpiece of Oahu’s latest resort development effort (or, at least to golfers and other reasonable people, it is). Though located amongst the dry plains of Oahu’s south side, the course teems with lovely Ted Robinson water features, including a drive-through waterfall by the 12th tee. The golf is fun and reasonably challenging for resort golf, but nothing that will test you too much, unless the trade winds are blowing. Plan on having lunch at Roy’s, one of Hawaiian chef Roy Yamaguchi’s chain of Pacific Rim restaurants, which is located adjacent to the clubhouse. Ask to be seated in the bar outside, so you can watch players wetting their approach shots on the 18th.

Free Course of the Month - Molokai - March 2010

Golf on the island of Molokai, Hawaii

Golf on the island of Molokai, Hawaii

Download the PDF here. (Only current month PDF available)

This month we’re offering not just a single course for download, but an entire chapter! (Of course, there’s only one active course on the island. Doh!) Molokai isn’t exactly a golfing wonderland, especially since the only resort course on the island (Kaluakoi Golf Club) closed right before our book went to print. However, the local’s 9-holer, Ironwood Hills, is absolutely worth playing if you’re in the neighborhood. Check it out.

Free Course of the Month - Mauna Lani South Course - February 2010

The South Course at Mauna Lani Resort, Hawaii

Mauna Lani’s South Course is one of the most fun courses in the state. The course boasts two strings of glorious ocean holes (including the postcard-perfect par-3 13th) amidst a rolling, emerald green layout cut through the signature black lava of the Big Island’s Kohala Coast. It’ll cost you a few nickles, but I’ve encountered nothing but smiles on the course, even from golfers who have just dropped one into the Pacific. With perennial sunshine, warm breezes, and picturesque, compelling golf, Mauna Lani’s South Course is a must-play on the Big Island.
